Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, this science fiction adaptation is set on the dwarf planet Ceres where Astro-biologist Captain Kurtz has gone missing from his outpost. Taking an interactive first-person role, it is your mission to retrieve Kurtz, and as you journey deep into the Ceres cave network you will learn the story of Kurtz’ disappearance via the onboard Artificial Intelligence Teeva!
